Where is a better place to sit/stand at the Allstate Arena?

I have two sets of tickets for Smashing Pumpkins at Allstate Arena and now I am trying to figure out which seats are the "better" seats in terms of having a pleasant concert experience which, for me, means being able to see at least part of the stage for most of the show and hearing the songs played loud through my really nice earplugs.

Sometimes I am REALLY BAD at the Internet. So now I have a set of tickets on the floor (section G5, seats 193-194) and a set of tickets in the lower level section (section 113, row C, seats 1-2). I went to the Allstate Arena when I was really little and it was still called the Rosemont Horizon for Chicago Wolves hockey games, but that is a completely different thing and I can't remember what the place looks like inside. The virtual tour on the arena's website is not very helpful. Having to stand for 4 hours is not a problem for me, and I also don't mind sitting. So, people of MetaFilter - which would you choose?
(Note: the Smashing Pumpkins are my favorite band in the entire whole world and have been for...16ish years. I was way young when I got into them, then they broke up and broke my heart, and I was finally able to see them when they toured last year at the Riv in Chicago. This tour I am seeing them twice - St. Louis and Chicago - because WHO KNOWS with Billy Corgan, they could break up again.)
